I've followed the 'SPSource_Starter_Guide_WSPBuilder.docx' tutorial and everything was correct.

But I've a question : once you've extracted the aspx pages + schema.xml, which tool can be used to edit a AllItems.aspx page in designer mode ?

This is not possible using SharePoint Designer or VisualStudio because the masterpage cannot be found once the pages are extracted from the site.

Any solution for this ?

I've also posted this question to (Sorry for crossposting...)

I received an answer from jthake on my question on the SPSource codeplex site:

Unfortunately there is no visual designer for these pages in SP2007 due to the comments you made. You could start hacking at the files to fix the references, but obviously that would then need to be corrected to then deploy them in the WSP file.

So I will close this question.
